Replica Watches EU — This chronograph celebrates the 100th edition of the Targa Florio automobile race.
This year, from 5-8 May, Eberhard & Co. will be Official Timekeeper of the Targa Florio, which is celebrating its 100th edition, and will present a chronograph especially created for the competitors in this race.
Set up in 1906 by Vincenzo Florio – a highly cultured man enamoured of his native land – the “world’s oldest and most famous” automobile race, an icon of Italy and of Sicily in particular, is looking proudly towards the future through a four-in-one event: Targa Florio Rally, Targa Florio Historic Rally, Targa Florio Classica and Targa Florio Historic Speed.
This motor racing event will bring together extremely valuable cars, great champions, crews from the four corners of the world, collectors and enthusiasts. The history of this discipline will come to life again in the very places where it was born, passing on a culture which, besides being all-Italian, is part of our global heritage.
Eberhard & Co. has come up with the Champion V Targa Florio replica watches to celebrate the race’s Centenary. Elegant, sophisticated and sporty, Champion V is a mechanical, self-winding chronograph with two counters, one for the minutes and one for the hours. The dial is customised with the logo of the 100th edition and its style and colours are evocative of motor races. Waterproof at 50 m, it has a 42.80 mm steel caseback with convex sapphire glass, a caseback fixed with 6 screws and enhanced by polished satin finishes, a steel bezel with a circular aluminium insert that has been treated with anodic oxidation.
The timepiece comes with a leather strap with a customised “E&Co.” buckle.
